Lupita Nyong’o Named Best Dressed Black Female In History Lupita Nyong’o Named Best Dressed Black Female In History

Kenya’s award-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o, has been named one of the best dressed black women in the world.

In the latest issue of The Daily Beast, Lupita has also been named among some of the most influential black female fashion icons.

The magazine described Black History Month, which falls at the same time as New York, London, and Milan Fashion Weeks as a fitting moment to celebrate inspirational black women who were and are still style leaders.

“It has been said that style cannot be taught. You either have it or you don’t. Nyong’o clearly has it, landing on best-dressed lists the moment she began to appear on red carpets following her film debut in 12 Years A Slave”, The magazine wrote about her.

From the ethereal powder blue Prada gown she wore to collect her Oscar in 2014, to the red-caped Ralph Lauren ensemble she wore to collect her Golden Globe the same year, Nyong’o has consistently shown that she is a fashion risk taker, trailblazer and influencer.

The area in which Nyong’o has had most impact is in the realm of beauty. Named the most Beautiful Woman in the World by People magazine, she is the first dark-skinned, natural-haired black woman to achieve mainstream success as a beauty icon, culminating in a cosmetics contract with Lancôme.

Also in the list is US First Lady Michelle Obama, who the magazine said she is the first black First Lady who has graced the cover of fashion bible Vogue magazine twice, and that her fashion choices have the ability to transform designers and brands overnight.

Others who made the list are actresses Diahann Carroll, Coretta Scott King and Lena Horne, classical singer Lillian Evanti, Donyale Luna, Diana Ross, Grace Jones and Ebony magazine co-founder Eunice Johnson.
